Children's ministries aim to relieve poverty and hardship among orphans through clothing, food and basic education. There are around 60 children being educated at the Christian school.
WHAT YOU CAN DO

£20 provides one orphan with food, shelter and school books for one month. £30 helps keep the training school operating each month. £50 provides 25 Bibles in indigenous languages. Give to India ministries here.

PRAY FOR

India has more (and larger) people groups with no Christians, churches or workers than any other part of the world. There are still large numbers of tribal groups that are unevangelised or under-evangelised, among them the Sindhi with only about 300 believers from a 36 million population and the Bhill and the Gond with about 11 million population each but only a handful of believers. Pray for Indian nationals working to reach their own people. They face increased and more organised opposition and often persecution.

Bible verse

All nations will gather in Jerusalem to honor the name of the Lord - Jeremiah 3:17

Missions Quote

"Almost everyone believes that prayer is important. But there is a difference between believing that prayer is important and believing it is essential. ‘Essential' means there are things that will not happen without prayer." - Dee Duke
